I had no clue where to turn for help. Banks was tough but polite. I give the man my total respect and unlimited endorsement. To me, he achieved the impossible.


Thank you for all you did to represent us. For me you represent all that is good in the Law profession. You were honest, fair, hard working, and ethical. What more can you ask? Once again thank you for all you did.
